In collaboration with Guilford County Schools and UNCG, Greensboro Opera presents a fully-staged opera for Guilford County fifth graders at the elegant downtown Carolina Theatre. The logistics of accommodating over 6,000 youngsters, who attend one of several morning performances during a three-day run, are expertly handled by our support group, Opera Companions. This collaboration also offers opportunities for Triad university singers, conductors, and musicians studying at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels to gain experience performing opera in the Carolina Theatre.
Help! Help! The Globolinks!

In 2014, Greensboro Opera received a generous special grant from ArtsGreensboro to create the Greensboro Opera Young Artist program to bring live opera/musical theatre to the Greensboro community. Three young artists were selected to work with 7th Grade students at Aycock Middle School over several weeks. With the guidance of the young artists, the students created and then performed their own original opera before the school, teachers, parents and the community. See the news clip below: Opera at Aycock.
For the senior citizens of the Piedmont, Greensboro Opera provides entertaining and informative courses about opera -- onstage and off – at popular Triad Shepherd’s Centers.
For various organizations throughout the Triad, Greensboro Opera presents lectures, mini-performances, sneak-previews, and inside views of the opera world. Does your group or club need a colorful speaker? Call us!
